Pinhook —

Collaboration Series

Pinhook takes a winemaker's approach to whiskey. We celebrate the natural differences that occur between barrels, treat each set as our harvest, and craft each vintage to reflect their unique attributes. The Collaboration Series celebrates that approach by inviting a luminary from the world of wine to help us blend and proof a special set of barrels into a one-of-a-kind special release.

André Mack

André Hueston Mack is the founder and award-winning winemaker of Maison Noir Wines and was the first African-American to be named Best Young Sommelier in America by Chaîne des Rôtisseurs.

Sean and André met while working at the lauded New York restaurant Per Se and have been friends ever since. Their collaboration on two five-barrel batches, blended from the ten Wyoming Whiskey barrels Pinhook purchased in 2012, is a tribute to André’s superlative palate, his long-standing friendship with Sean, and the inspiration Pinhook draws from the world of wine.
